So much for a budget “fix”

WisPolitic’s Budget Blog has a link to the memo from the Wisconsin State Senate describing proposed budget amendments. You’ll notice a few things that don’t have dollars attached. I guess it’s all in a day’s work.

Part of the plan is to raid $22 million from the REAL ID stash. Wisconsin 5th Congressional district representative Jim Sensenbrenner has already had some fun with that.

Since 4K was an issue in Elmbrook, read #13 in the Legislative Fiscal Bureau above. I found it interesting that phasing in the 4K program was considered against the state’s constitution.


  1. Has the school board discussed what effect the delay in equalization aid will have on our district’s budget? Also, does any remember if Elmbrook was counting on the 4K start-up funding had it passed? I can’t recall.
